Gorgeously lustrous Bluefaced Leicester wool kettle dyed emerald green and plied with a fluffy purple novelty yarn. This fleece (from Little Smoky in Alberta) is so beautiful and springy, this yarn is super soft.

2.2 oz / 63 g
28.5 yards / 26 – plus an extra 5.5 yards in a separate skein I'm throwing in for free – it was too much for my spindle to do it all in one skein
wpi 3-4
Fibre: Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) x Charolais Rideau Arcott wool, novelty yarn

The wool in this yarn was dyed by me in my smoke-free, cat-friendly home using professional acid dyes. It was hand carded and then spun on my Ashford traditional wheel, after which the whole skein was treated to a relaxing unscented Eucalan soak.

I spend a significant amount of time cleaning vm (dried bits of vegetable matter) out of my fleeces by hand. It's the natural, friendly way to get rid of it! However, it's not a perfect method, and you may find a teensy bit here or there. Consider it proof of the natural, handmade origins of your yarn!

Care instructions: Wash and rinse gently in tepid or cool water, squeeze out excess water in a towel, dry flat.

SHIPPING COSTS: Shipping does not include insurance or tracking. If you would like these services, please let me know and I will adjust shipping costs.
